Hero of the Month - Sarah Blackmore
Gymnastics Victoria are proud of having so many committed coaches, judges, volunteers and administrators across the State. We will be featuring Hero of the Month profiles – you can nominate a coach, judge, volunteer or administrator to be featured by clicking here.
Sarah is an important member of the Coaching and Leadership Team at Peninsula Gymnastics. She is a Coach and Team Leader to our GymStar Challenge Program.
On top of her responsibilities, Sarah took it upon herself to organise a Kids helping Kids fundraising event for the Royal Children's Good Friday Appeal at Peninsula Gymnastics. Sarah initiated the program for the day and enlisted staff members to donate their time.
She gathered community donations and support for prizes and raffles. Sarah also organised media and advertising for the event along with activities including live music, face-painting, photo-booth, performances and demonstrations from Olympian Georgia Bonara, Ninja Warrior Ashlin Herbert and gymnastics circuits and ninja challenges for all the children attending.
The event was a total success with over 100 people attending on the day and a total of $1,432.25 was raised for the appeal.
Amazing achievement Sarah!
